The agriculture industry is facing some of its biggest challenges of the last decade, from technology-enabled productivity improvements to shifts in consumer preferences to turmoil in domestic and international markets, particularly as the industry manages the disruption in the food supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainties of global trade.
